How are cross-laminated timber buildings built?
How are CLT pioneers using it to construct buildings?
The engineering firm, along with panel maker D.R. Johnson, the general contractor, and the APA - The Engineered Wood Association, determined for a brief period of time D.R. Johnson used pre-heated wood materials - prior to these materials receiving adhesive and being pressed into CLT panels. This caused premature curing of the adhesive and resulted in poor bonding, causing the delamination.
